Review

Fans of the 1974 film Swallows and Amazons are in for a treat because, at the Windermere Jetty museum, actress Sophie Neville – who as a 12-year-old played Titty Walker – brings in a treasure trove of memorabilia including the dinghy Swallow’s original pennant and one of the bows and arrows the children made themselves.

Not everyone has idyllic childhoods like the Walkers and the Blacketts did, though, and we’re reminded about the Windermere Children, a group of 300 holocaust survivors brought to the Lake District in 1945 to start a new life after their families were murdered. There’s also a heart-warming story about a small portrait from the First World War.
